Critic Reviews for Baunsu ko gaurusu (Bounce KO Gals)
Manages the difficult feat of being simultaneously sordid and tedious at the same time.
Bounce Ko Gals feels fabricated, studio-bound and claustrophobic, which doesn't add to the ripped-from-the-headlines authenticity this genre has always depended on.
The movie frames a critique of socially permissible pedophilia as indelible as Harada's eavesdropping mise-en-scène.
Foreign film buffs who enjoyed Lost in Translation may find it worthwhile to revisit Japan with a native guide.
a drama that focuses on the seedy world of Japanese schoolgirl prostitution - wins points for trying to tackle a hard subject, albeit with velvet gloves.
Audience Reviews for Baunsu ko gaurusu (Bounce KO Gals)
This film has so tremendous amount of sense of "now" (especially for a man like me who has grown up in Tokyo) that it is hard to believe that this film was made more than 10 years ago. There are some points in director's personal politics and feelings against Japan that I cannot fully agree with, but still the script is really well-written, and images, performance, and other factors are all powerful. Harada is, I think, really one of the important directors of contemporary (90s and 00s) Japanese cinema.
Not a sexual movie but it deals with selling sex. This movie has a lot of heart and I enjoyed it alot. It basically follows the activity of the 3 youngfemale characters for one night. The script is smart and the acting is spot on by the entire casr. It will hold your interest, with plenty of drama and suspense. See it!
